Evergreen Modified Win Extends Points Lead for Paul Hartwig,
After weeks of battling Mother Nature, Christmas came early
for the folks at Evergreen Raceway. Their “Christmas in
August” event went off without a hitch and the children at
the track even received presents from Santa Claus himself.
For Paul Hartwig, Jr. of Freehold, NJ, it was also a holiday
of sort, as he extended his points lead with his fourth
Evergreen Modified feature win of the year. TJ Gursky of
Lehighton has been close to visiting victory lane at the
speedway, but came up short in the past. That’s now changed,
as he sealed the deal Sunday afternoon by taking the Street
Stock feature win. Tom Casagrande of Drums extended his
points lead by bringing home the Factory Stock win and Sam
Ryan of White Haven notched his fourth Four Cylinder victory
of the year. Sue Ryan and Harry O’Neill drove to victory in
the Mechanic’s races and Emily Ryan and Jen Adams notched
Powder Puff race wins.
Evergreen Adds Two Additional Dirt Modified Shows
With at least nine cancelled events this season, many of
which included the Dirt Modified division, Evergreen Raceway
has decided to add the Dirt Modifieds to their next two
Enduro shows, which are slated for September 4 and October
Both of the dates are in conjunction with the track’s
regular Enduro dates and the September 4 show is named “A
September to Remember”, in memory of long time Evergreen
patron, Butch Barry. A 35-lap Pro Stock Memorial event will
take place that afternoon.
The Dirt Modifieds and Pro Stocks will run heat races,
followed by their features. The Open Comp cars will take to
the track as well before the start of the official Enduro
program, which will consist of Four Cylinder, 6/8-Cylinder
and Redneck Reverse Enduro events. The Enduro events will be
held rain or shine and if the Pro Stock and Dirt Modified
portion of the show gets rained out, they will be run on
The track is hosting a $10 discount for Enduro
pre-registration. The form is on the speedway website and
must be mailed in, along with the $40 pre-registration fee.
Drivers will start straight up as they pre-register, or of
course register at the track on race day for $50, and they
will start behind the pre-registered drivers. The
transponder rental fee is $10. Drivers racing in more than
one division will be charged the $10 fee and $5 for each
additional division for the rental fee. Pit admission is set
at $25. There is no Pro Stock or Dirt Modified registration
fee. The pit gates will swing open at 10:00 AM and the
afternoon of events will kick off at 1 PM.
Drivers from the Street Stock division are invited to
complete with the Pro Stocks, if they choose to do so.
All of the rules, info and the pre-registered drivers are
listed on the speedway website.
The grandstands are slated to open at 12 noon and
grandstand admission is just $5. Children 10 years of age
and younger will be admitted for FREE.
Evergreen’s “A September to Remember” Butch Barry
Memorial Coming Soon
July and August has been somewhat of a struggle when it
comes to getting the shows in at Evergreen Raceway. However,
with September just around the corner and with fall-like
weather approaching, the speedway is kicking off the month
with “A September to Remember” Butch Barry Memorial event on
Sunday, September 4. The Pro Stock division will be in
action that day and the event,
which is sponsored by the Barry family, will be in memory of
long time Evergreen patron, Butch Barry. Also on the card
for the Enduro portion of the program will be the
4-cylinder, 6/8-cylinder, Open Comp and Reverse Redneck
Pro Stock Purse
Just a reminder: What we have been doing with the
4-Cylinder Enduro cars being allowed to race with our
regular Four Cylinder division will continue through the end
of the season or until further notice. This has been a
success and we’d like to thank all of the Enduro drivers
that gave it a try so far.
If you’re not familiar with this, the Four Cylinder
Enduro cars can compete under the Enduro rules (must meet
Enduro rules) with our regular Four Cylinder division. The
highest finishing Enduro
driver will receive a trophy and each driver that starts the
feature will receive a payout based on where they actually
finish in the feature.
Regular four cylinder drivers- We
were asked if offset wheels are allowed. The answer is yes.
However, you must meet the weight percentages in the rules
and the offset on the front & rear must match per side. In
other words, if you have a 2” offset on the RF, the RR needs
to be 2” as well, etc.
EvergreenRaceway and Penn’s Peak Radio Geared
Up for Remainder of 2016 Season
Based on the success, beginning this Sunday, we are
doing the same for the 6/8-Cylinder Enduros, as they can
compete with our regular Factory Stocks. Of course to be
eligible for the highest finishing Enduro car, they must
meet the Enduro rules.

Stocks, click the ‘Payout’ link.
